I have just submitted my first MTD VAT return for a client.
Under the old system, as you probably all know, you could obtain a copy of the return submitted, a copy of the submission receipt and a copy of a statement that included details of the amount due and the date that the direct debit will be taken (HMRC-Submit-a-return).
I've received nothing from HMRC with regard to the VAT return just submitted although my software, VT Transaction+, is saying that the return has been submitted.
Do you eventually get a confirmation email from HMRC? Does the client get an email? Can you view the VAT return submitted on HMRC's website and, if so, how?
The old login (not the ASA login) lists the VAT returns submitted for the last 15 months but does not list the one just submitted but says that it could take 24 hours for it to do so. Will the VAT return eventually appear in that list?
As it stands I've got nothing to show the client that the VAT return figures they approved have actually been filed with HMRC and that the direct debit will be actually be taken.
I'm flying blind here!
